Sports injury claims

It is a common misconception that only a sporting professional can make a sports injury claim. In fact, providing your sports injury was caused by the negligence or recklessness of another individual, you may be eligible to claim financial compensation.

Can I claim for my sports injury?

If your sports injury is found to be the result of an error of judgement on your part or the general physicality of a high-contact sport such as rugby, the court will generally refuse to award financial compensation.

However, if a case of negligence is involved on the part of another player, the referee or umpire or individuals responsible for the upkeep of sporting facilities you may be eligible to make a personal injury claim.

The following situations generally result in a sports injury claim:

  • A referee or other responsible person was negligent in their duty to nullify situations posing unnecessary risks to players.
  • A trainer or manager did not provide appropriate supervision, resulting in injury.
  • Sports equipment or facilities were allowed to develop dangerous defects due to poor maintenance.
  • Another player demonstrated extreme recklessness or obviously dangerous conduct.
  • A formal sports trainer gave incorrect sporting advice or direction, resulting in an injury.

If your sports injury occurred as a result of any of the above situations, or even if you simply suspect that negligence was directly responsible for your injury, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
